CharmingDate.com: honest or dishonest?

Dear Krystyna,

first off I would like to thank you very much for all the information you have been providing within your blog. I really appreciate your effort, and I have found good tips to benefit from when it comes to dating in general.

I want to ask you if you have heard of the dating site called Charming Date that cooperates with the local Ukrainian and Russian dating agencies. I have a suspicion that the majority of ladies there are simply hired to chat and write emails to men, who (unlike women) are charged credits for email opening, sending, each 5 mins of chatting, each 1 min of calling, 10 credits for requesting contact information, and even many more for inviting ladies to a date.

The site is very expensive (on average $6 per 1 credit) and states that it is just a mediator between the local agencies and men, meaning a separate entity. They brag of the ultimate anti-scam policy, and strict rules to hold up to for the agencies where the ladies’ profiles have to go through a hard verification process.

I have been in a close contact with a lady from Donetsk since the beginning of November last year. More and more, I think I have fallen a victim to a scam. She seems to enjoy talking with me, sends me tons of emails on a daily basis where she writes how much she needs me, wants to meet me personally, and loves me. On the other hand, I am starting to feel that she is more or less reluctant to any action which would lead us to being together…

Do you know if there are agencies that keep their ladies to generate revenues based on their correspondence, and just pay rake-offs to the ladies based on the amount of money spend by their “clients” ? Are you aware that some of them cooperate with the Charming Date site?

Do you think there could be any good reason for the ladies to stick to correspondence via the dating site exclusively? Like e.g. there can be some contracts between the agency and lady which doesn’t allow her to use the provided computer (in case she gets one from the agency) and internet service for other purposes. And she would have to pay while corresponding via external email.

Thank you very much for reading the letter and if you know anything about it I would be grateful for any feedback.

Kind Regards,
Tomas

Hi Thomas,

thank you very much for your message and your warm words about my site. 🙂

Let’s talk about Charming Date. I have posted a few reviews on CharmingDate.com:

  1. CharmingDate.com Scam Review
  2. CharmingDate Review: It is a fake
  3. CharmingDate.com Review by a real user
  4. Charming Date: A mirthless Ukrainian dating experience
  5. The marriage services by Charmingdate.com: negative!
  6. Charmingdate.com Review: scammers for a fact
  7. CharmingDate.com Reviews

CharmingDate.com has plenty of negative reviews and I recommend my readers to get from this dating site as soon as possible. I always recommend men to ask the woman for her real name and then find her profil on Russian social networks like vkontakte.ru or odnoklassniki.ru. I do not trust websites which do not allow personal contact with the woman. Personal communication is very important in developing a relationship with her.

As for me, such sites which do not allow to exchange direct contact data are not serious. I know that the majority of International dating sites are very expensive but some of them allow to get a direct contact from your lady in order to communicate with her out of the dating site (e.g. Elenas Models or A Pretty Woman allow that). So that you can see if your woman is real or not. Communicating with the women only via dating sites is like you buy a pig in a poke – you do not know 100% if the woman is a scam or not. Not giving a chance to communicate with the woman directly is a red sign for me.

As I know, CharmingDate is running by a Chinese web developer who is located in HongKong. There are a few sister sites like e.g. http://www.chnlove.com/. It is really hard to find out who is the owner because this is hidden. I found this sentence online: “More trustworthy websites have their contact information visible in the whois records. Charmingdate.com has privacy services enabled on their whois records, which raise doubts about their trustworthiness.” and more: “The IP of the website suggests that its servers are located in Hong Kong. And, according to whois details, the website owners are based in United States.

Do you know if there are agencies that keep their ladies to generate revenues based on their correspondence, and just pay rake-offs to the ladies based on the amount of money spend by their “clients” ? Are you aware that some of them cooperate with the Charming Date site?

Do you think there could be any good reason for the ladies to stick to correspondence via the dating site exclusively?

Yes, the agencies hire translators and writes who chat with the men – so that they buy and buy credits for the communication.

Well, as you can see, I am not a fan of Charming Date 🙂 I do not trust this company. There are so many alternatives and dating sites with a better image – I cannot understand men who are ready to spend their money on this useless site…

Good luck!

I wish you a lot of luck in Ukrainian dating adventure!
